When Book Quotes Meet Reality....

I've had a bad weekend to say the least. I've experienced my first funeral as an adult and as a parent. It was of a seven week old baby (not mine.)  It is heart breaking - my heart still hurts for so many reasons including the fact that the father of the baby referenced my son during the funeral. 

Anyway, I just finished Notes From Ghost Town by Kate Ellison |goodreads|author website| It was flippin' fabulous, by the way. 

So, on page 321 of my physical ARC I came across a short passage, a liner really. And to say it completely did the book justice and also made me crack all at once is an understatement. 

"People die. They die too early, sometimes. And there is grief that almost crushes everything." 

I'm not sure if it is my age and/or life experiences, the more I read Young Adult books I realize how much these fictional stories really cross over to real life. Sometimes, like now, I really wish it didn't.

I was going to go ahead with "Whatcha Think About Wednesday," because heck knows right now I am thinking A LOT! But the longer I stared at my blog the more annoyed I got. 

So, please, excuse the mess while I do a little dusting.  I mean, afterall, we've had some wonky, not-so-winter, weather here in Georgia and I have been on a Early-Spring Cleaning rampage.  I mean, it's amazing what feeling better, feeling alive, feeling free of everyday crippling pain, can do for a person.

Oh, and watch out.  I already have TWO Giveaways to post.  Yep.  I'm a girl goin places.

Ciao XoXo

Two Surgeries Later.....I'm back :)


You read right. TWO! Two whole surgeries and a bunch of resting and doing nothing - not even reading- and I'm back.

I took some time to get my priorities straight and I've decided reading is still one of them but I'm not going to let anyone dictate how or what I blog about. It became such a chore, blogging. Even reading wasn't as enjoyable. It's lie I was a pod person of the blogging community.

So now, I blog for ME! And for YOU - those who actually want to read what I have to say. No giveaway buy offs. No daily walk blog-around posts that you'll read 100s others of. Just Me, Flippin Fabulous and what I'm reading. So, since you've stuck around this long, I advise you to stick around a little while longer while I work the kinks out and make my foot print back in the book-ish community.
